Purple Fire Truck Gifts Show Support

Posted by Kyle Design on October 12, 2015

For the most part, we expect fire trucks to be red. Sometimes they’re yellow. I bet you’ve never seen a purple one. Or have you? Turns out, some fire stations have rolled out a purple fire truck this October to raise awareness during domestic violence awareness month.

How cool is that?!

If you’re married to a firefighter who grew up in a violent home or are a survivor of domestic violence yourself, you’ll love Kyle Design’s cute purple firefighter themed gifts. They are pictured in red, but all of Kyle’s gift items can be customized with any color – choose purple to spread awareness against domestic violence or even pink for breast cancer. Or, just add your husband or wife’s favorite color to create a truly unique birthday or anniversary gift for him or her.

These cute fire engine pill boxes can be engraved to create a cool gift for a survivor:

I haven’t seen one in person yet, but I hope my community rolls out a freshly painted pink or purple fire truck this month too!

Unique Gifts for Attorneys with Decorative Scales of Justice

Posted by Kyle Design on October 7, 2015

I binge-watch Damages on Netflix. I can’t help but wonder how accurately it portrays the life of an attorney. If it does a pretty good job, then I have to admit I’m a little glad I didn’t go into law. On the show, the characters eat, sleep and breathe their jobs. There is no time for a social life outside of lunching or grabbing late-night drinks with your colleagues. And do these people ever sleep?

Basically, I have a major respect for anyone who decides to practice law. Which is why I love these unique gifts for attorneys that feature a decorative Law Scales of Justice design. If you’re looking for gift ideas for attorneys, I think you’ll love the selection at Kyle Design. There are attorney badge reels for court, professional card cases with engraved names, embellished stainless steel flasks, gavel Christmas ornaments and other gifts for an attorneys office they can use at their desk.

Personalized attorney gifts are great for new attorneys, for your boss on his or her birthday, for your legal staff at Christmas, and for retiring attorneys at their retirement party.

Fall Night Lights for End of Daylight Savings 2014

Posted by Kyle Design on October 30, 2014

The other night my husband and I went out to dinner and on our way out the door I thought we were eating really late. But once I buckled up, a quick glance at the dashboard clock corrected me – it only felt late because it was already dark outside. And as I looked at the calendar on my phone, I realized it’s about to get darker a lot earlier because Daylight Savings ends this weekend on Sunday, November 2nd.

I’ve already decorated my home for Fall (loving the scent of my pumpkin spice candles!) and it’s about time to start using my Fall night lights. I hate coming home to a dark house in the evenings so I always leave a night light on in my kitchen. Whether you’re looking to add some light to a dark bathroom, hallway or kitchen, you’ll love creating your own custom night light at Kyle Design.

fall-night-lights-customize-yours-kyle-designKyle’s decorative night lights are handcrafted with her etched metal artwork and custom stained glass. Each elegant light is created just for you – choose the elegant amber glass to fit into any warm decor, or get red glass for your kitchen, blue glass for a bathroom or purple if that’s the color of the decor in your home.

The metal etched designs of Fall leaves, trees, nature, hot beverages and more come in a variety of finishes including silver, brass and gold. Kyle’s polished and brushed silver night lights look excellent in trendy homes with gray walls. If you have warmer tones, you’ll enjoy the brushed brass or polished gold night lights.

These Fall themed night lights make excellent gifts for Fall birthdays or as way to thank a host for having you over for a holiday dinner or Thanksgiving. They offer a beautiful way to decorate your home for Fall and are a great alternative to standard, tacky plastic nitelights. As we say goodbye to October and welcome November and December, let’s not let setting our clocks back result in stumbling around in the dark. Order a custom night light from Kyle Design.

Unique Breast Cancer Gifts Offer Encouragement for Women

Posted by Kyle Design on October 1, 2014

As we kick off breast cancer awareness month my heart goes out to everyone who has been touched in one way or another by this terrible disease. And I imagine that’s all of us since 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. In fact, in the time it has taken me to get this far along in this blog post, one more woman has been diagnosed. But, a diagnosis is not a death sentence and I like to look at the bright side, which is that in the U.S. there are over 2 million breast cancer survivors walking our streets, playing with their kids and grandkids, sipping pumpkin spice lattes and making every day count.

So let’s celebrate the good things.

Everyone woman who has beat cancer deserves a daily reminder of how strong she is. And every woman who’s still battling needs encouragement. Let’s use this month as a reminder to embrace the time we have on this planet, to make time for those we love, and to encourage the women in our lives who are facing the toughest fight of their lives.

I love this graphic I saw on Pinterest:

Breast Cancer Quote

Such a great quote to motivate and encourage men and women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Engrave this on a unique breast cancer gift from Kyle Design to remind someone you love that attitude is everything. Kyle’s pink ribbon gifts are all handcrafted for you and offer a fantastic way to let your mom, sister or friend know how much you love them. Create a keepsake of a loved one or shop motivational gifts for breast cancer patients to offer them daily encouragement.

Decorative Night Lights for Kids Who are Scared of the Dark

Posted by Kyle Design on September 17, 2014

Is your son or daughter scared of the dark?

Many small children are afraid of the dark and the best way to alleviate their night time fears is with a night light. Adding a soft, glowing light to a kid’s bedroom offers your son or daughter reassurance during the night.

At Kyle Design, we have a variety of designs that are popular for children’s rooms including the carousel night light for girls, rocket night light for boys, butterfly night light, star night light, celestial night light, fairy night light, baseball night light and more.

Click customize my nightlight to select from hundreds of Kyle’s unique designs.

Kyle’s nightlights are handcrafted so each one is created specifically for your son’s or daughter’s room. You get to select the stained glass color, the metal finish of the decorative design (shown: brass carousel and silver rocket), and the base type.

Automatic night lights are best for kids’ rooms as they turn on when it gets dark but also turn off in the early morning hours when they’re no longer needed.

Unique Bridal Shower Gifts for Summer Brides

Posted by Kyle Design on July 18, 2014

Wedding Season is in full swing. With 3 of my girlfriends about to walk down the aisle, there’s a lot of exciting things going on this summer. One of my favorite pre-wedding activities is the Bridal Shower. I just love an afternoon full of women, showering the bride-to-be with gifts. One thing I always try to do is buy off the bride’s registry. While I know it’s fun to open something you requested, I think it’s even more fun to open a gift that you never saw coming, and that you just love. And who doesn’t love a gift that’s personalized?

Show the bride how special she is to you with a special gift created just for her. Kyle Design has a range of personalized gifts for the bride that you can surprise her with this summer. Here are some of my favorites:

Help the Bride prepare for her Big Day with a Day Of Survival Kit. Personalize this adorable metal case with any 3 colors and then throw in bobby pins, a sewing needle and thread, safety pins, mints, super glue – anything that could be a life saver to the Bride on her special day.






Personalized Wedding Flask

Fabulous 4th of July Birthday Party Ideas

Posted by Kyle Design on June 24, 2014

If your birthday falls on or near a holiday, you know how difficult it can be to separate your birthday from the holiday, and how hard it is to get a group of people together to celebrate. One of the best holidays to have a birthday is 4th of July. Lots of people love to get together for great food, fun and fireworks. You can have so much fun with a patriotic party theme and the weather is guaranteed to be warm.

Top Party Ideas for a 4th of July Birthday

Patriotic Fruit Appetizers

Make festive party kabobs with strawberries, bananas and blueberries. Love this one we found on Pinterest from Party City:


Ice Cold Drinks

With the blazing heat of July, ice cold beverages are a must. Don’t just throw soda cans and water bottles in an ice chest. Create cool drinks in individual glasses (mason jars are cheap and totally on trend right now) or in a giant drink dispenser. Here are 2 great ideas from a couple of blogs – click either image for more information on creating these fruity delights:

4th of July Mocktail

Decorated Mason Jar Glasses

Mason jars are awesome and you can buy a case of them at Walmart or Hobby Lobby. Help party guests differentiate their drinking glasses by creating these patriotic mason jars decorated with scrapbook paper – a fun idea from blogger Cheryl (click the image for her tutorial):


DIY Burlap Birthday Banner

Creating a personalized birthday banner is another fantastic way to make the birthday guy or gal feel special. Hobby Lobby and other craft stores sell blank burlap pennant banners which you can decorate any way you want. Use red and blue paint to write out their name or birthday message. You can also make a similar banner using scrapbook paper and twine or ribbon. Below is a “Happy Birthday” banner that can be purchased on Etsy. Next to that is a banner that says “Love” that I’ve included since it has a great tutorial on painting your own custom burlap sign.


Customize this Birthday Banner in Etsy shop TwoDoodlesDesigns

Red, White and Blue Birthday Cake

This is where you want to keep the cake birthday themed. Don’t do a flag design with a fruit topping or frosting – if you do, it won’t really feel like a birthday cake. Whether you plan to bake a home made cake or order one from a bakery, keep the red, white and blue color scheme with some stars or fireworks, but stay away from flags and keep it birthday oriented with a “Happy Birthday” message.

Sparkler Birthday Candles

Top the cake with sparkler candles from your local party store, or buy some online. We found the ones below at



When the sun goes down, let everyone have some fun with sparklers. Keep everyone’s hands safe by using a solo cup to separate their hands from the sparks – a fabulous safety tip for kids and adults from


DIY Fair Games

Hostess with the Mostess blog has excellent party games with a county fair theme which are perfect for any 4th of July party. Click the image below for instructions on DIY ring toss, balloon darts and more.
